|Flying Lotus at Moogfest|
Asheville was the home for Bob Moog for the last 25 years of his life, and is currently the headquarters for Moog Music Inc., The Moog Foundation, Dr. Bob’s Sound School, and the Moogseum, which is dedicated to be an educational outlook into the history of Bob Moog’s inventions and innovations. Moog Music still produces the best electronic equipment such as the Voyager Synthesizers, the Moogerfooger guitar pedals, and theramins. After taking a break in the year, 2013, Moogfest is coming back in the spring harder than ever with a larger than life lineup of over 100 artists and spanning five nights.
The daytime is something that is being given a large shift in importance this year, as all five afternoons will be packed with over 60 conferences and talks from top inventors, musicians, designers, and thinkers as well as experimental performances, workshops, art installations, and experimental performances.
Moogfests in the past have featured performances from legendary musical artists such as Moby, Amon Tobin, and Big Boi from Outkast. This year is no different. This year there will be over 100 musical acts including performances from M.I.A., Benie Worell Orchestra, Kraftwerk, Sasha, Mark Farina, and RJD2. Tickets are on sale now starting at $299 for all five days and nights of entertainment, and $199 for nighttime only. If you are at all a fan of electronic music then this event is not to be missed.
